It is mechnically similar to the Peugeot 308, which was launched in 2007.
Three-door coupé and five-door hatchback are the available body styles, with petrol or diesel engines.
A sedan version is also marketed in certain markets. In China, a sedan version is locally built and sold as the Citroën C-Triomphe and is four-door sedan with a separate trunk. The sedan version is also manufactured in Argentina, where it is sold alongside the three-door version. The sedan is sold in Brazil and Hungary as the C4 Pallas, and will be exported to Spain, where it will be sold as the C4 Berline.
A seven-seater compact MPV version, the Grand C4 Picasso, was introduced in 2006, while a five-seater called the C4 Picasso was introduced in 2007.
Citroën C4 BioFlex is a bioethanol flexible fuel vehicle.
The motoring press has described it as a return to the more bold and unconventional design approach for which Citroën was famed before the 1990s, when Citroën designs became much more conservative (ZX, Saxo). The distinctive exterior styling of the C4 is the work of Donato Coco. The current C4 is not the first Citroën to bear this designation; Citroën previously produced a C4 in 1928. The quirky rear-end styling of the three-door C4 brought back many memories of the 1995 Mazda 323 F three-door.
A major selling-point of the C4 is its extensive use of technology. For example, the car features the "Lane Departure Warning System" (only in the top-of-the-range "Exclusive" model), which alerts the driver if he or she crosses a road marking without using the turn signals; directional headlights; perfume dispenser integrated into the ventilation system; translucent dashboard, transparent glass roof; ESP (Electronic Stability Program), and a fixed steering wheel hub which lets the driver operate several functions of the car without removing his or her hands from the wheel. The fixed hub also allows for the first production use of a "shaped" driver airbag. Because the hub maintains a constant position, the airbag can be optimally shaped to spread the load across the greatest possible area of the driver's body in a collision, thus reducing the chances of serious injury. In addition, the car features an innovative centrally mounted translucent LCD speedometer display that remains clearly visible in all lighting conditions.
Surprisingly, given the emphasis put on technology, the car's In-Car Entertainment, while well integrated into the car's information system via CAN Bus, is not DAB ready. MP3 playback is supported by the entry level audio system and high-end audio with double layer sound insulated windows and integrated navigation system is available as extra. In September 2007, a USB box accessory (Ref: 9702.EZ) was released to enable full iPod connectivity with the standard RD4 radio.
The C4 does not feature Citroën's hydraulic suspension, it is reserved for higher class models, such as the C5 and C6. The Picasso version can get a pneumatic rear suspension.
Underneath, the C4 uses an identical mechanical design to the contemporary Peugeot 307. Interestingly, its underpinnings date back to the 1991 Citroen ZX, although it is a huge leap forward over that and the Xsara that was produced between the ZX's demise and the C4's launch.
